The T&T Film Festival Brings Trinidad and Tobago into Focus

The 2017 edition of the Trinidad & Tobago Film Festival gets underway this week, running from Tuesday 19 to Tuesday 26 September across venues in both Trinidad and Tobago. Four T&T features and over 34 local shorts will premiere at ttff/17.

Green Days by the River, a film adaptation of Michael Anthony’s classic 1967 novel of the same name, will open this year’s festival, with a red carpet gala and screening to be held at the National Academy for the Performing Arts (NAPA) on Tuesday 19 September.

The first local film by a T&T director and producer to open the festival, director Michael Mooleedhar’s beautifully shot film is set in the idyllic countryside of 1950s Mayaro and re-tells the story of 15 year old Shell. Newly arrived in the village, he quickly gets caught between his longing to be a man, and his child-like innocence in the face of adult cunning. With adolescent hormones raging, amidst the beauty of the local girls and the Mayaro landscape, the quiet storm that’s brewing may prove more than Shell can handle, and life as he once knew it may never be the same again.
